Soprano, aka Dutch Soprano, is a 3-year-old white male with one brindle ear born May 19, 2010. He is on the small side for a boy, weighing in around 60 pounds. His sire is Soprano Drive and his dam is KB's Firehawk. Soprano suffered a torn plantar ligament at the track on May 22nd, which ended his 53 race career at Gulf Greyhound Park. Soprano ran his first race on October 10, 2011, and his last on May 16, 2013. He had his surgery at the Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center on May 30th.

His first race was on April 23, 2012 and he finished on May 24, 2013, with  his career coming to an abrupt end with a leg broken in two places. He had surgery on May 30th at the Dallas Veterinary Surgical Center.

We are desperately needing fosters willing to look after broken leg foster dogs. We have two more incoming this week, Soprano and Clad! If you're thinking about fostering, but aren't ready to take on an injured greyhound, please consider fostering an already healed greyhound like Dutch or Damon so that their current foster home can take on another broken leg. If you have questions about fostering, please contact Jennifer Vilches at 



There are no Bridge dogs that we know of this week!
